A year ago today, original Deftones bassist Chi Cheng passed away after being in a coma for several years following a terrible car accident. Although it seems small in the grand scheme of things, one of the losses fans suffered as a result of Chi’s horrible accident was the loss of Eros, the last album that the band recorded with Cheng.
Today, in a very brief statement via the band’s Facebook which read “Chi, We miss you today and everyday,” the band released one of the songs from that album. It’s a musically melancholic track with uplifting lyrics. But it has that signature Deftones emotion and angst. Below you can hear “Smile”.
